Early Spring Flowers Attract Hummingbirds & Butterflies
Sunrise Forsythia is a deciduous shrub with ornamental flowers. Plant a few in containers for your patio, or use as a natural screen along your property line.
Your Sunrise Forsythia is often thought of as a “harbinger of spring”. In late winter, before the leaves have even considered popping out, bright yellow flowers will appear in profusion amid the branches of your Sunrise. The butterflies and hummingbirds of your yard will love it!
In autumn, the vibrant green foliage turns to a deep purple for additional fall interest. A favorite aspect of your Sunrise is the ability to force the flowers indoors. Simply cut a few of the branches when in bud, and place in water on your kitchen table. Within a week or two the fragrant blooms will provide a fresh breath of spring in your home.
Sunrise Forsythia will grow to 5 feet in height with an equal spread. It has a semi-spreading habit but still manages a rather compact appearance. When mature, your Sunrise will display quite an elegant presentation in your landscape with its arching branches that tend toward a fountain-like appearance.
Sunrise has no significant disease or insect issues, and deer tend to pass it by. It does best in full sun, but will tolerate a variety of soils and conditions, including heat and drought (once established). Overall, Sunrise Forsythia is a vigorous shrub that is relatively fast-growing and easy to maintain.
